BODELE, BODELL, BROWN, McKENZIE -
I am researching stone and earthenware potteries in the state. I have a reference to a pottery of Brown & McKenzie, East River, WV. John A. McKenzie and his wife L. Elizabeth are buried appropriately enough in the Potter's Shop Cemetery, Hardy, WV. There is also in the 1850 census a David M. Bodele (Bodell) who is listed as a potter, as is John W. Brown in the 1860 census for Mercer County. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

DUNCAN, POOLE -
Looking for information regarding Crocket L. Duncan b 5/10/1858 d 5/19/1915. He is laid to rest in Bowling Cemetary in Spainishburg, WV between his 1st and 2nd wives. Also, looking for information on those wives, one might be Maggie Ellen Poole (most important). The other Nancy Duncan b 5/9/1859 d 5/11/1901 (not so important). Maggie and Crocket had a son, John Walter Duncan (my grandfather). Information regarding the parents of Croket L. Duncan would be a big help. Also, Maggie may have been full or mostly Cherokee Indian.

FARRIS -
Remember the old tent meetings, 1920-30? My great-aunt Nettie B. Farris was a Pentecostal Holiness tent preacher who evangelized through the southern WV coal fields and as far as the Covington, VA area from 1925 to 1936. Her husband Frank was a coal mine supervisor. Anyone who recalls Nettie Farris or tent meetings of that era, please send me details! Thanks
